The whole family | Mommy and Me Monday | 128th ed


It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.

When in Tennessee, you must act like a tourist and do all things touristy. One of those things was to go to Ober Gatlinburg and ride the gondola up to the top of a mountain.

(sidenote: anytime Mr. Serious or I started talking about Tennessee, we would simultaneously start singing the song Tennessee by Arrested Development…just went and watched the video now…wow!)

The girls waited relatively patiently for our turn on the gondola up to the top (which is very similar to the one at Stone Mountain). While we were waiting, Grammi snapped a picture of us without us knowing. #2 was on a sticker kick this morning, so we all got them. Mr. Serious left his on apparently!

While she was taking that picture, this is what I was snapping.  Pretty funny that we were taking the pictures at the same time.

This was right before we headed back to the car. The girls were tired and ready to go. Pretty sure you can’t tell that from the picture, right? (<–sarcastic font!)

Did you go anywhere this week?

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies.  If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link.  It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

    We went there in May. Had a littl cabin in the woods and saw some bears! Glad you had a nice time. I’m originally a Tennessee girl, grew up about 90 mins from there.

    1. The SIL and BIL said they heard bears. We were in a room in the basement with a noise machine…we didn’t hear much!

  2. The “real” moments always make for the funniest family pictures. A happy family indeed!

  3. looks like you had a great time! love family days like that!

  4. How fun! We need to make a trip up to TN soon….we had so much fun in Chattanooga last time and I know my girls would love to go back.

    1. The girls had a blast…where we stayed wasn’t the most kid friendly, but I know that in a couple years, they’d love it more. I think 4-5 is the minimum age for good fun.

    1. Well, I guess it’s not exactly the same, but it was pretty close..pretty fun, I think.

  5. You have a very beautiful family! I love Mr.Serious’s name. haha

    1. Thanks! Mr. Really, Are You Serious? is just too long…he’s pretty un-serious!

  6. a. love that song.
